Groundswell’s School-Based Programs provide access to challenging, developmentally-aligned visual arts learning experiences rooted in principles of social justice for public school students across New York City. 

Our Mural Making and Social Justice Art Making programs offer an encouraging and creative space where young people can engage in a variety of artistic media while exploring questions of identity, expression, justice, and community care.
